Need help, something went wrong bench pressing
Hi this is my first time posting here....I have took a 4 year break from lifting and just have got back into it
I kept up good nutrition, good form on all exercises, I got some descent gains...then I done a 6 week cycle of superdrol at 40mg ever day "livers are for quiters" ......this added over a hundred pounds to my bench ...unfortunaly my last chest exercise wich was yesterday, I got streached and warmed up good, begin doing my bench press starting light going up 20lbs each set...on the way up when I done 265 for 4 my chest felt kinda tight, I ingored went up to 285 brout it down perfect form touch my chest and my right pec poped and hurt real bad...my spoter got it I quite immediatley....now it feels a little weired not in a lot of pain just feels funny if I apply pressure to that muscle for example like button my pants it tingles in my pec kinda were my arm pit is.....there is no bruising...just slight pain kinda of a burning feeling? Any advice, do u think I have messed it up bad....I know now I shouldn't have made those huge gains but I really thought at the time good form was the key to being injury free

Your strength probably surpassed the connective tissues limit. This is why steroids for a beginner is a bad idea. Not to mention superdrol done at 40mg for 6 weeks is not the best idea, I hope you had an excellent PCT.
Sounds like you could have torn your pec.

As for advice I would get it checked out by a doctor if possible. Definitely give yourself a break from pressing and pec work.

Yeah I would go to the doctor but there really isn't anyone who specialize in this around here.....I live out in the country.....does stuff like this heal on it's own, also I didn't mention at the time a week before I start some test enanthate, I wonder if anabolics help heal stuff like this

They actually might, but you seem to be going buck wild with this stuff, what's the hurry? How long ago did you finish your superdrol cycle and what was your PCT? I would never jump into a cycle with an injury. Also you have already injured yourself likely from gaining strength too quickly, why would you want to compound the issue by running ANOTHER cycle? That's not very smart.
As for the chest, I'm not sure what the treatment would be. If it was a tear I would imagine it would depend on the severity of it. I'm also not sure how they would determine if it is a tear or not. Best idea is to go to the doctor, even if it's not a specialist.
If you can't/won't as I said just cut out any pressing and chest lifts ad let it rest.

As for the gear I have access to all this stuff....it's laying all over the place test, tren, etc.....it's kinda free ppl give it to me...when I was on the superdrol cycle I started the test, I was going to do the super one more week then finish the test then do the pct, at the end of it....I have nolvadex, clomid, and armmedix....I just figure maybe I would keep doing it and go down on weight add reps and sets....but if it is a bad idea I can always quite and go straight to the pct

your first mistake was lying under a bench press IMO. sounds to me like a minor tear or strain, but that would be impossible to really know without an MRI. none of us are doctors and none of us can diagnose you over the internet. go in, get an MRI and see if you tore it, strained it, tore a tendon or whatever else it could possibly be. you may not have a doctor that specializes in rehabilitating it, but i am sure you have one that can tell what it is.

Yeah I was always careful with deadlifts and sqauts I figure they was a accident waiting to happen. But I never figured bench was really that bad for stuff like this till now..i tried pushing against a door casing straight out in a branch press motion and it felt fine but when moving my arm lower by my waist then applying light pressure it felt weired.....idk......thinking back on when it happen, I didn't use a spoter on any of the sets till the one that got me and he did give me a lift off, he kinda pushed it away from the rack toward my feet, might have contributed to it......when I do work chest again, is there any exercises that u all would recomend that is less likley to injury

You're an idiot for running drol for 6wks at 40mg and frontload test also. You deserve what you had coming to you. You're the reason why PH's are banned.

You're the reason why PH's are banned........................ .........................well this really isn't advice, So why am I an idiot.......I did the superdrol first and started test while still on it....so It would really be like kickstarting the test, I took 2 grams of milke whistle ever day with this and checked my blood pressure everday......nolva, clomid, armedix......yeah I did take a high dosage, but at least I did have ever thing else right.

I do appreciate all the good advice ever one else have gave me.....

I used to take PH's and wasn't into computers and the internet, so my source for knowledge were the musclemags. I thought the stuff was over the counter so, increase the dose. Back then pct for PH wasn't talked about much. I found out from a Pro in my area who owned a supplement store that I was screwing up. Since the "ban" of PH's I haven't looked into the stuff thats out now. I thought it was all junk and probably would've done the same thing as Blownstang01. I wouldn't call him an idiot for it however, after reseaching the internet about drol, I see that it recomends no more than 20mg a day and not more than three weeks-with real gear the doses vary from person to person and are taken for months. Some guys take dianabol at 50mgs per day for a lot longer. I can see someone used to real gear taking a "supplement" at higher doses to try to get the same effect. Bodybuilders use themselves as guinea pigs all the time. Maybe his tendons weren't ready for the heavy weight because of his long layoff, But if he posted up how great his size and strength was because of his increased dose and time "on", He'd be a hero and more people would do what he did to acheive it. He posted for help not insults.

Thanks OMNI, I thought that other guy was being harsh.....I would never recommend for anyone to do what I have done on the superdrol, it is a harsh compound and I went way over the dossage, I took a chance but at the same time anyone who takes any anabolic substance is too. I don't know why that guy acted so offended
